Metal Matters


117 - Youth Code

Ep. 117

Sara Taylor and Ryan George of industrial titans Youth Code are the guests for this week's episode. Since their inception in 2012, Youth Code's impeccable blend of pulverizing EBM with hardcore and metal sensibilities have cemented them as true torchbearers for much of today's synth driven extreme music. The band has leveled audiences the world over, touring with acts as varied as Skinny Puppy, Chelsea Wolfe, Code Orange, Deafheaven, and Carpenter Brut. In March they self-released A Skeleton Key in the Doors of Depression; a collaborative lp with esteemed producer King Yosef. We caught up with Ryan and Sara to discuss the new record, the perils of touring, trying to stay creative in the midst of a global pandemic, and the blood feud that is synths vs. guitars. Oh, and I might have gotten myself cursed in the process. Stick around and find out how!
